Calling all smart and compassionate mental health professionals!

Are you a....

  • Psychologist?
  • ​Therapist?
  • ​Counselor?
  • ​Social Worker?
  • ​Other mental health care professional?

Do you wish you could do more for your clients when it comes to grief and loss?

Are you looking for a grief certification or other tools
to help your clients
navigate grief?

Learn the evidence based program to effectively help people walk through grief and loss.

Let’s be honest, most mental health professionals haven’t received much training on how to help people deal with grief. Have you noticed how many presenting issues are related to grief? Feelings of grief are caused by more than just death. Grief can be associated with divorce, estrangements, childhood issues (ACE’s), physical/verbal/sexual abuse, COVID-19, job loss, change in health, pet loss,
trauma, PTSD and so much more.

Grief is a common thread that affects most of your clients and the accumulation of losses over the years limits and restricts their lives in many areas - including romance and business. 

The Grief Recovery Method is the perfect tool for mental health professionals because everyone experiences grief, and YOU are who they turn to for help!


We have trained thousands of mental health professionals. Here’s what some of them have to say...

How does the Grief Recovery Method differ from traditional
grief support?

There is a beginning and an end to the process. It’s not ongoing talk therapy.

When done in a group setting, GRM sessions are closed groups.

The GRM process allows the individual to shift their lens with respect to "processing" (or not processing) their grief from their "story" to their "emotions".

It reflects characteristics of Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Emotionally Focused approaches to supporting clients.

The structure of the GRM formats keeps the process intact, with little or no allowance for deflection on the part of the therapist or the griever, thus creating a sense of containment and safety for the client.

The Grief Recovery Method is an important tool for any mental health professional because it depathologizes the construct of "grief" and normalizes the client's emotional, psychological and somatic responses to loss.

The Grief Recovery Method has been proven to be “Evidence Based” and effective by research done at Kent State University. It is the only Grief Support Program to have received this distinction of being evidence based!

How does The Grief Recovery Method differ from EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) helps with the neuro networks while the Grief Recovery Method deals with what is incomplete on an emotional level. A number of mental health professionals who have taken the Grief Recovery Method Certification Training also use EMDR.

The techniques focus upon different areas.
